This morning while playing my newly renewed xbox live gold account, my screen just went white. I turned it off, then on. And there my xbox 360 died. I want to know about your experiences with the red rings of death.

microsoft have increased the warranty on all the consoles upto 3 years even just for 1 or 2 red lights.
Now i am on my second, before microsoft upgraded the warranty it was just 1 year for 1-2 red light so when mine went wrong i told them i got the rrod and sent it away to them when it came back i sold it on ebay then bought a new one with the new jasper chip in plus i was able to get a 5 year warranty thru the shop where i bought it since then i havent had any problems

You need to call 1-800-4-my-xbox to get it repaired. You will need the serial number. They ship you a label to send your xbox to them and they send you a "new/refurbed" xbox.

I have 4 X Box 360's and have ahd to send each one back at some time or another.

You can do it all online from their support page.

It took around 2 weeks for them to return my new XBox

My 360 got a red ring for unknown reasons only after 2 days of use.
After that 2 more appeared but it hasn't happened since.

Ive fixed about 200 xbox's the 3 red rings is pretty easy to fix, just look on youtube for xclamp xbox 360 repair or google llama xbox 360, he has very nice instructions on the repair. How old is your console?
